Arsenal have reportedly taken an interest in Wigan winger Charles N'Zogbia.

The French international winger was set to leave the Latics for Birmingham in the summer, but a deal to St Andrew's fell through and Arsenal are now thought to be considering a bid.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is thought to have been impressed by the player's consistent performances in the Premier League, and the north London club are keen to strengthen in January following record profit announcements at the Emirates.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was also thought to be keen on the player, with the Old Trafford club looking for fresh faces to replace the 'old guard' of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes.

24-year-old N'Zogbia joined Newcastle in 2004, and switched to the DW Stadium five years later to continue his career in England.

The Metro reports that Wenger's French connections could help persuade the player's agent that Arsenal is the right destination for the player.

Wenger has a track-record of getting the best out of young players at Arsenal, and whilst N'Zogbia has over 150 Premier League appearances to his name, he still has plenty of years left on his side.

N'Zogbia is thought to crave a big move, and both Manchester United and Arsenal would fit the bill as the player looks to further his career and cement a regular spot in the Les Bleus outfit.
